I happened upon this lovely pomegranate spice box (besamim) for havdalah. I am in a pomegranate mood after I saw a recipe for pomegranate jelly... This besamim is from the metal sculptor Rhonda Kap . Rhonda's Judaica carries great value, because her art becomes a part of people's lives as they use the ceremonial objects to carry out the sacred rituals.
This recipe sounds pretty darn yummy though, too
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/3 cup granulated sugar
¼ cup water
3 cups chilled pomegranate cranberry juice
In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the cranberries, sugar, and water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes, just until the cranberries burst and the mixture thickens a bit. Allow the berries to chill completely and then force them through a fine-mesh sieve, discarding any solids.
Mix together the cranberry puree and juice, and then freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Makes 8 servings.
